Belly button surgery is often referred to as umbilicoplasty. It's a procedure that modifies the belly button's appearance or form. When there has been a pregnancy, a major weight reduction, or an abdominal hernia, the operation can assist to restore the belly button. Although it is frequently done in conjunction with other procedures, the procedure can also be done on its own.

Any excess skin surrounding your belly button will be removed by your surgeon. They may adjust its angles to appear higher or lower than it did prior to the treatment, depending on the results you want. Afterwards, as your belly button heals, they’ll use stitches to hold everything together.

Why to prefer Umbilicoplasty surgery:

An old belly button piercing or one that your body rejected might occasionally produce a scar that detracts from the appearance of your belly button. Umbilicoplasty might be beneficial depending on where the scar is.

Umbilicoplasty might be a good solution if the scar is on the tiny ring of skin around your belly button or in the indentation of your belly button. But, a scar revision operation can be a better choice if the scar is located somewhere else, such as just above your belly button. This entails reducing the visibility of a scar through surgery or topical therapies.

Preparing for your surgery:

  • Smoking should be stopped several weeks before your operation
  • Maintaining a healthy weight can help patients avoid further complications
  • Regular exercise can also help (but make sure you consult your GP first)
  • There should be no shaving or waxing of the area to be cut in the week leading up to the operation
  • Having a bath or shower on the day of the operation is a good idea.

Umbilicoplasty reduction Recovery:

Umbilicoplasty procurers just need to recover for a short time.
Most of the time, you’ll be able to go back to work in a day or two, but you might need to wait a few weeks before starting any workout again.
While you’re recovering, be sure to take any prescription medications as advised.
